|Need a subwoofer reccomendation.....|
Grab that Bag End Infrasub 18 for $450. Problem solved for big room bass under your budget. Your wife might leave for good though.
|Need help with my speakers|
Those should be the same as the Sig III speaker except for the corian enclosure (Parm) I believe. It was probably a more expensive option, but won't count for much in today's market. Some of the wood Unity speakers really looked nice. I didn't sel...
Upgrade to B&K much cheaper second hand. More than enough power for Gallo sats.
|Newport Beach show any one going?|
Check out the Whammerdyne in room 5228.http://www.whammerdyne.com/
|Strange Hum from Right Pre Channel Only|
Ground loop. Try using a two prong adapter on your power cables until you find it.
|Bookshelf Speakers with the decent bass|
You might try Zu Omen bookshelf speaker. I heard these running on 5 watts of power and the 10" drivers were putting out some nice kick drum bass. 97db sensitive.
|Can't get Acoustic Zen Adagios to sound smooth|
Try a tube DAC or CD player. In my experience this can smooth out that CD sound.
|I finally found my final turntable :|
aaaahh... my ears!
|Best multichannel amp for quality stereo listening|
If you can make the B&K work, I would stick with it for 5.1 movie watching. Video inputs will be out of date, so it might require a couple remotes or a universal remote to get the audio modes to switch right when going between 2ch and movie wa...
|Good Subwoofer recommendations|
There is a Bag End Infrasub 18 for $895. That sub was a review winner many times for HT. Probably can't go wrong with that. With 40% open walls you will need the size as well.
I would lean toward the tube pre-amps as well. You probably can't go wrong with CARY or VAC and Mattmiller has some fine suggestions. I'm running a all tube system on Gallo Reference MK2 speakers. Anthem (Sonic Frontiers) CD1 tube player. N.E.W. P...
|KLH MODEL NINE ELECTROSTATIC SPEAKERS.|
Sounds like that would work. You can jumper the wires or use double runs. Both ways are pictured here.http://www.bcae1.com/spkrmlti.htm
|Rear in wall speakers to match B&W 685|
I would stick with B&W in-walls with drivers as close to your fronts as you can buy. This will give you the best results.
|Which receiver would be the best choice?|
Look at B&K. Robust and built in the USA. Much cheaper used.
|Ringing from the tweeter|
Sounds like a tube is ringing. Wiggle the tubes in their sockets. You can flick small signal tubes with your finger. It might stop for a while. Caution! This will send nasty sounds through your speaker. Disconnect the speaker to be totally safe. I...
